Skool Daze (1985) (Microsphere)


Published 1985


Skool Daze is a computer game created by David Reidy (whose wife Helen was a school teacher at the time) in collaboration with graphics designer Keith Warrington for the ZX Spectrum and released by their company Microsphere in 1984. A Commodore 64 port was subsequently made. The game was critically acclaimed by several contemporary magazines for breaking many of the gaming moulds by pursuing a creative route of a childhood experience at school.

The game featured the player as a schoolboy named Eric, with the objective of stealing his report card out of the staff room safe by accomplishing various tasks around the school. The computer controlled all the other characters in the game, including the headmaster, other teachers, the school tearaway, bully and swot, and numerous other pupils. All characters could be renamed. If Eric was caught out of class or otherwise misbehaving, a teacher could hand him lines; when over 10,000 were accumulated, the game would end with Eric's expulsion.

The ZX Spectrum version was voted the 4th best game of all time in a special issue of Your Sinclair magazine in 2004.
